Poll: Most Americans think politics makes no difference (they’re probably right)

in Uncategorized by

A new USA TODAY/Bipartisan Policy Center poll “finds that Americans by more than 2-1 say the best way to make positive changes in society is through volunteer organizations and charities, not by being active in government. Those younger than 30 are particularly put off by politics. They are significantly less likely than their parents to say participating in politics is an important value in their lives.”
